Wireshark Review

Helps me solve network transaction and security issues

How has it helped my organization?

It has help me to 

  • solve network and transaction issues
  • understand protocols and application communication
  • check quality
  • solve security issues. 

What is most valuable?

I can save the traffic and analysis when I want to. Also, it's especially helpful to follow the stream (TCP, UDP, etc.).

What needs improvement?

It needs the ability to follow multiple interfaces for specific traffic from different network zones/virtual networks. It would help to understand how any packet is going through the network.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sometimes, in the previous version, it lost the scroll when I needed to scroll back and forth.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Sometimes I need to use tcpdump when I need to check the packets on CLI.

How was the initial setup?

Very easy. It's also possible to change source code and compile if you want to change something in the code, because it's free.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's free.

What other advice do I have?

I believe everyone should use this tool if they need to analyze packets.
